Please don't apply the recent (security) updates to your  Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+. Although they say that it has bug fixes and improvements, it definitely did slow the phone and draining my battery really fast. I've noticed the reduction in network coverage too.

These new updates are slowly killing your phones life pushing you to buy the newer ones. Be aware and be careful.

I've left this post here for those who actually would like to use your phones for a longer time. These so called "security updates" won't do anything but gradually slowdown the performance and make you go for a newer model. and those who support Samsung's decision for not updating their older flagships with new software should understand one thing, One UI isn't developed by Google it's Samsung's own software. If a small developer in another corner of the world could find how to make tweaks in the new softwares and make it adaptable for older phones, what's a multibillion dollar company with their own R&D doing?

many customers have no pc or any other tricks. they go through normal update process like phone updates through mobile data and their device. Why Samsung will gives updates possible through phone? If any loopholes there in updates via mobile then stop that first , definitely one will go their care center if anyone want to update his phone or anyone who have PC. think like normal customers dear brothers.

It used to be like that bro. But with the advancements in technology problems like that occurs once in a blue moon. Now it's safe to do OTA updates, but the problem I've mentioned could be a deliberate move from the company. If you just check the standby time before and after the update anybody can understand this. By keeping more activities in the background even when the phone is not used, they can drain the battery and slowdown the performance of these phones.

I simply dont under why Samsung is too much deliberate to ripoff the devices even with the Samsung service centre my device lost so many features. reset is not flashing from the service centre is not working oh shamesung sunder wants us to purchase new devices and drag all the devices to slow down or just want us to upgrade the downgraded device I think hansung will lose the ground and those who claim that having number "one sales " these those people who are average customers  who don't have the knowledge aur simply called for the hype and then there will be the complains and toying with customer pathetic ways of doing business, wow now I understood why apple charges so much price they give services and features instead of gimmicks and removing features and removing hardware feature this is the reason people are crazy about apple
